"The Thirteen Reasons Why NOT
leader guide is pure gold. I was able to give it to our leaders and go over it with them in detail about how to guide and direct students either being hurt, wanting to hurt themselves, or thinking about hurting someone else. This is a great resource and tool for equipping youth workers to be faithful and good stewards of the students God has entrusted to us. Plus, it makes you the pastor look intentional in view of the leaders and volunteers, that you're taking time to resource them and equip them." - Michael Bowles, Youth & Young Adult Pastor at Life Center Church "I've so blessed by this resource. It is concise and well thought out. This is one of the best resources for youth leaders I've ever seen working in youth ministry and is one that I've already made required reading for my team. Thanks so much!" - Sean Masopust, Northridge Church
